"If you have to ask yourself whether "it’s the right thing to do", you’ve probably already answered your question."
I grew up under that advice and tried very hard to impart that wisdom to my children. As a young man one of the most influential persons in my life was my father. He always seemed to know what the right thing to do was. He lived his life trying hard to never judge and when looking at a situation involving others or a difference of opinion, to place himself in their shoes so as to see life from their perspective.
It often amazes me how we spend the first 25 years of our life trying to figure it out ourselves and the next 50 trying to remember what our mentors told us. One of the most memorable conversations I had with my father was on a trip to New Orleans: In a Car. It was a long trip. We always seemed to be able to talk on those trips no matter our differences. Just before we reached our destination he looked over at me and said “I sure am glad to see you made it over fools’ hill”. I didn’t understand and told him so. He responded that he had spent the first fifteen years of my life trying to build the moral background and wisdom that would help me through life and that at fifteen I pulled away hard and he let me go hoping I would one day return to the footings he had laid. I was twenty- five, through college, gainfully employed and attending church regularly. And somewhere in the conversation on that long trip he heard something that gave him hope for me.
This grounding is the cornerstone that I have tried to incorporate in not only my business but also in my life. The golden rule has served me well.
I am now 30 years married to a wonderful woman with shared values and goals. Her father was of the same ilk as mine. We have raised two great daughters who have married two of the best son–in–laws a parent could ask for. We also have a new grandson I am very proud of. I am part owner of a successful business with two wonderful people. And feel like I am well respected in my community. Yet, in all this, my most satisfying moment was when my children told their mother and me that they hope to raise their children just like we raised them.
It wasn’t always pretty but we tried to keep the long term outlook in focus. We are building for the future just as our parents did with us. This philosophy not only works well in my personal life but also in my business. It’s about setting the stage today for a smooth tomorrow.
